Reasons to Watch

New to Formula E? Here's what you're missing.

Tune in

Tune in to the closest, most intense racing series on the planet. Watch 22 cars and drivers go head to head on the streets of the world's most progressive cities. Watch The Fiercely Driven. Watch Formula E.

For the final round of the voestalpine European races, see all 22 Gen2 cars and drivers rip around the cobbled streets of Switzerland's capital Bern. With just two races left of the Championship, it's make or break in Bern.

What to look out for in Bern

  • Back to Switzerland: After the ABB FIA Formula E Championship brought circuit racing back to Switzerland for the first time in more than 60 years, we're back for more as the all-electric series storms into the Swiss capital of Bern on June 22. 
  • Make or break in Bern: After 10 rounds of inner-city street racing, there's still less than a race win (just 21 points) between the top five drivers in the Championship standings. With that in mind, every driver will be desperate to put some distance between them and the competition in Bern in a bid to improve their standing going into the final in New York City on July 13 and 14. It's all still to play for. 
  • Home race heroes: Between Nissan e.dams' Sebastien Buemi and Venturi's Edoardo Mortara, our Swiss drivers will be looking to the crowds for support in their home race as both go after their first win of the season. With a podium finish each already, will either make it to the top step in Bern?

Still catching up? No problem. Here’s what you missed at the last race. 

 

Buemi bounces back 

One of the undisputed masters of Formula E, Nissan e.dams' Sebastien Buemi - with a total of 12 wins and 22 podiums in the series - finally made it into the top three for the first time this season in Berlin. But, after starting the race from the very front, it was a slightly subdued celebration for the former champ. "I'm looking forward to Bern - hopefully, things will just be a bit better there. I just want to give my home crowd a good result," said the Swiss driver after the race in Berlin.   

Di Grassi secures home win for Audi

Just over a year ago, the picture of the podium at Tempelhof Airport was a similar scene, save for one key difference: the driver. A year on from Daniel Abt's sensational full-points victory in his home race in Berlin, his teammate Lucas di Grassi secured yet another sensational win for the Audi Sport Abt Schaeffler squad on home turf.

Why Watch Formula E in 2019?

New Cars

While the championship might be only five years old, the technology racing around the circuit is ever-changing. The 2018/19 season sees 22 brand new Gen2 cars racing around the world in anger for the very first time. The Batmobile-esque all-electric racer has double the energy storage capacity of the Gen1 car, meaning it can complete a whole race, so wave goodbye to mid-race car swaps. With 250kW of power, the Gen2 will accelerate from 0-100km/h in 2.8-seconds and go on to a top speed of 280km/h. Greater speeds, more action on track and with just one car per driver - there's everything to lose. 

New power modes

The 2018/19 season is set to be more intense than ever before. New ATTACK MODE lets every driver pick up an extra hit of power at their own risk. To fire up ATTACK MODE, drivers will need to arm their car, drive off the racing line, and through the Activation Zone. It’s only here that they’ll be able to collect an extra 25 kW of power. Drivers that secure the extra speed, can use it for a few laps when they want to race harder, giving them the edge to keep ahead of the competition.

The best driver line up

With newcomers HWA Racelab taking the total number of teams to 11, the 2018/19 season of Formula E boasts one of the finest driver line-ups in motorsport. With the likes of Felipe Massa (Venturi Formula E), Pascal Wehrlein (Mahindra Racing), Alexander Sims (BMW i Andretti Motorsport), Maximillian Guenther (Geox Dragon), Oliver Rowland (Nissan e.dams), Gary Paffett and Stoffel Vandoorne (HWA Racelab) all new to the series, the competition is higher than ever before. With all drivers fighting to earn their seat, it’s tough at the top.

13 races in 12 cities over 5 continents

At Formula E we turn any city into a race track. The Formula E 2018/19 season calendar sees some familiar favourites reappear alongside some new, iconic cities. With a total of 13 races in 12 cities spread across five continents, what started in Saudi Arabia will return to Marrakesh and Santiago before moving to Mexico City, Hong Kong and, for the first time, Sanya in mainland China. For the newly titled voestalpine European races, we're back on the streets of Rome, Paris, Monaco and Berlin before the series makes its debut in Bern ahead of finishing up with a double-header season finale in New York City, where we'll crown a new champion. It's going to be one hell of a ride.
